While it’s not unheard of to find an accomplished software developer who can also write, it’s not exactly a common occurrence. With that thought, I opened up “User Mode Linux” and dug into the first chapter.

Wine Doors opens Windows under Linux

When I first used Wine to try to install Windows software on my Linux machine, I found it less than user-friendly.
